I have always been blessed to be surrounded by some amazing girlfriends in my life. Yes, as the seasons of life change, some have come and gone; some by choice and some by force. But one thing is for certain: we all need a good girlfriend (or two or many) in our lives. There are just some conversations and places that are meant for girlfriends and not necessarily for our husband. I know that if I have a crisis or need a good ladies’ night out, I will never be without a friend to reach out to.
When I got married, people thought I was crazy because I had 12 bridesmaids (outside of my 4 sisters). But for as long as I can remember, I have always had a big group of close girlfriends. So even after I got married, it was important for me to maintain those friendships. And as we got older, got married, and started having kids, the dynamics changed a bit. But the bonds and the love have not.
So even if it’s once a year, I try to make sure that we get together for a cup of coffee, lunch or dinner (sometimes one-on-one, and sometimes upwards of ten plus). I love my girlfriends to death, and there is nothing like their friendship.
So here are 8 types of friends I’m blessed to have, and think every woman should have too:
She’s the one, who no matter what you’re doing, you know you can call her and she will be excited for you. You could’ve mopped the floor or bought a new pair of shoes she knew you desperately needed. Whatever it is, she is going to cheer you on like no one else will. But she genuinely loves and supports everything that you do.
